Next week is Dinosaur Week at Tanner's preschool. I made a Dinosaur Matching Game for his teacher.
I made a little box to hold the game pieces as well.
I used the Tag Feature from the Dinosaur Tracks cartridge. I picked 15 different dinosaurs and sized the tags at 2.0 inches high. Tanner and I debated on which colors to use. According to Dino Dan (on PBS) some dinosaurs are purple!! I wanted them to be all the same color as this is a PreK class and these kids are sharp as a whip!
I cut out 2 sets of the tags in brown paper.
Some of the circles did not look perfectly round to my naked eye, so to be safe I grouped and copied the set of tags onto Layer 2. Then I used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts of each tag, leaving the circle.
I then cut the circles in green. I ran the dinosaur tags through my Xyron and stuck them on the circles.
Here is what they look like.
Then, I went to Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and cut out this box. I needed the box to be about 1" thick, so that is how I determined the size. I made it 5 inches tall. I cut this out of watercolor paper with a multi cut of 3.
I took a T-Rex tag and cut it to fit the front of the box. I used Nate's ABC's for the font.
I laminated them with my 9" Xryon and cut them out. I let my daycare kids test run the game. I split the game into two so 4 could play at once.
This has been such a big hit that I am making another set for my daycare and my friend's preschool class as well.
Thanks for stopping by!
